How well do the wood blades in the kit fly? Also how about the plastic 290mm blades? What are some other blades that you would recommened?

I use the 315's that come in the box. They work pretty well, especially the newer one with the plastic root reinforcements.

290 for practice!
Its quite strong! I crash a lot on the first time and the plastic blade never brakes! I got 2 trex now and the old blade still alive!
If your good enough then fit that 315! Its awsome!

The wood blades fly well, the plastic blades are good for stiring paint! Also have been told the Align carbon blades don't work very well. I have not tried them myself.

BTW the plastic blades don't track for s**t and realy bog the motor.

The best blades in my opinion are the stock woodies in the kit. I have tried all the others. The 315mm stock blades are just easy to use. Period.

How about the longer ones? I think they are 320's? Any ideas on how they fly? I know you need the longer boom...

325mm's They also fly good. They are a little but harder to track but not impossible. When I tried the stretch kit I was getting allot of blade flutter. I tightened up as much as I could on the head but it still occured. So I havent used them since.

Align Carbon Blades
Once you try the Align Carbons you will throw away all the others!

I don't have any trouble with my Align Carbons. I just had to add some tape to get them to balance. They are much stiffer and work great compared to the other kit provided blades.

WHAT??? I have tried every trick in the book and I can get my Align CF blades to stay in track. It would be great if I could use them. Out of the 7 T-Rex fliers I know none of us could get good results with the CF blades. I couldnt trade the CF blades for wooden ones if my life depended on it. Please tell me that you did more then add tape to them to get them to work???

Linear pitch curve. Throttle curve goes something like 0-40-80-84-88-92. Why can you tell me how to get the elusive Align CF blades to track? What does pitch have to do with the tracking?

I have been running a set of align carbons with no tracking problems.

I'm using the align $20 carbons, More stable than the Woods. Perfect tracking. Can't tell you about real flying. This is just hovering in my living room.

I am running +/- 10 on pitch. Al's ccpm mod and fuel tube dampner mod are the only things I have changed from stock.
